Mr. Suphachai Chearavanont, Vice Chairman of Charoen Pokphand Group and President & CEO of True Corporation Plc, said that CP is committed to supporting the One Young World Summit 2015 as it is an important global event. The forum will enhance foreign confidence in Thailand and strengthen national reputation and image while showing the country's capabilities to become one of the world's business, trade, investment, culture and creativity centers.

One Young World is an international forum where young leaders with strong visions and global figures from the public and private sectors will meet to discuss solutions to the current world issues in an attempt to make a better world and achieve economic, social and environmental sustainability. This is the positive energy that will drive significant changes in the world. CP and True therefore are willing to offer young Thai leaders an opportunity to meet with the world's leading thinkers in this forum, which supports the group's plan to nurture young change agents who will fuel the group's business development in parallel to social development.

Mr. Apaichon Vacharasin, Vice President of Corporate Relations Coordination Office, CP Group, said that this event gave CP Group a good opportunity to enhance its "CP San Fun Pan Okart or Just Believe in Your Dreams" (Dream and Opportunity Sharing) program by allowing young leaders to experience this unique international event. As a strategic partner of One Young World, CP Group has recruited and nominated 40 young leaders from across business units within the group and outsiders to participate in the One Young World Summit. In addition, this group of young people will continue their responsibility after the Summit as CP Sustainable Development Ambassadors. They will participate in various activities that will inspire positive changes in the organization and society, which will maintain the momentum of real change.

Dr. Kantima Kunjara, Group Director, Corporate Communications, Marketing PR & CSR of True Corporation Plc, said, "As the official communications partner, True Corporation brings to One Young World its world-class communications services and technology.

Ms. Laksameekan Ingkakul, Asia Director of One Young World, said, "One Young World is a major world event, as significant as the Olympics. It brings together young leaders aged 18-30 years from all over the world to discuss and exchange their visions, points of view and experience on current global pressing issues and what we can do to solve them. This year, six key areas of discussions will focus on education, human rights, global business, peace & security, environment, and leadership and government. World's thinkers, such as Mr. Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the United Nations and Prof. Muhammad Yunus, founder of Grameen Bank and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, will participate in the event and share with the delegates their perceptions. And, as part of this event, we will bring delegate representatives and members of the press to visit Thai Autistic Career Development Center where delegates can observe how True Autistic Application helps train vocational skills for autistic children and helps them generate income and find careers. This is an application that can truly change one's life and the world."

One Young World is a global forum that provides direction and guidelines for young leaders to think critically and take action in current global issues to drive and affect positive changes. More than 8.9 million people around the world have already received benefits from the positive changes implemented by the One Young World participants (source: PriceWaterhouseCooper). At the 2015 Summit, 160 young Thai leaders will be part of the 1,300 participants from 196 countries worldwide.
